Racing

J/105 Fleet 5 is one of the most active one-design racing fleets in Chicago or on Lake Michigan.

2024 Fleet Racing Calendar

All Fleet Events are conducted according to the J/105 Class Rules, with certain exceptions as noted below (for details, see Resources). Each event is also categorized according to crew and driver eligibility per the Class Rules. Each year, we score some regattas together in series, for which we award prizes in the fall.
